Located on JhongHua Road, just after MinSheng
Road (when driving south), KO RI YA Restaurant is hard to
miss, especially when the huge read and white signage lights
up in neon at night. This is a "smokeless charcoal fire
barbecue with hot pot" and an all-you-can-eat buffet.
On weekdays the set rate is NT$299 - NT$399 (depending on
your choice of meats), which gives you access to a fruit and
salad bar and a selection of drinks. But the main feature
is the barbeque. Each of the semi-private booths has three
holes, in which two detachable barbeques and a hot pot can
be placed. The friendly staff will then bring you an assortment
of meats, which you grill yourself. The middle hole is for
the hot pot, to which you add vegetables to your own taste.
And if you feel a bit nervous about grilling your own, the
staff are on hand to show you how. The vegetable hot pot is
available on its own for NT$199. On weekends the prices increase
to NT$329 - NT$429, with the vegetable hot pot going for NT$219.
KO RI YA can accommodate group bookings, but non-Chinese speakers
should note that there is no English available.
